We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Marriage is the “Glue” Which Keeps the Man and a Woman Together

It is interesting to note that the Greek verb used in both Matthew 19:5 and Mark 10:7 is the basic verb kollethesetai, which means “he shall be glued to his wife.” In Mark 10:7 it uses the compound verb proskollethesetai, (pros, “unto” and kollethesetai, “shall be glued), which means “he shall be glued unto her.” This cannot be passive but middle voice. He shall glued to his wife by anybody else, but by himself.
